M suggested we buy the Gilt City special for aerial yoga, citing it would pair well with some post-yoga brunch. 5 classes at $35 is a steal, so I was in. If you haven’t tried aerial yoga, it’s pretty awesome. I’m a big fan of the classes offered through Crunch. Being active in flying trapeze, I prefer the classes be heavier on the silks/aerial work than the yoga portion. The class we took today through Sacred Sounds Yoga was great, though definitely heavier on the yoga angle. Just a matter of preference.
Following class, I made my way over to Little Prince to indulge in some French brunch. Some friends and I tried to go there once for brunch on New Year’s Day, but arrived to find it closed. This time, no such issue. I even booked a table en route to the restaurant on the OpenTable app just to ensure no drama/wait when I arrived.
I ultimately did sit at the bar. There’s something cozy about the built in company and the constant attentive service it provides. It’s also a great spot to take in everything happening in the restaurant if you happen to be dining solo. I went with the French omelette, which had summer squash, basil, and raclette cheese. Paired with a classic cappuccino, it made for a perfect post-yoga brunch.
Bonus points to the Little Prince for the subtle tambourine jingle I kept hearing throughout brunch. I realized the manager would occasionally pick it up and let it jingle to the rhythm of the music playing overhead. Dig it.
